Two Important Scholars

Michael Coren - see had two excellent guests on his show tonight.

Author Bat Ye'or and Historian David Littman
Topics discussed were the Jewish Refugee Crisis in 1948 (from the Arab World - 900,000 Jews fled this region), bias against Israel at the UN (Littman spoke at length about this - he is involved in a NGO associated with the UN) and the rise of Jihadist culture in Europe.

For more on Bat Ye'or go to:
For more on David Littman's writings check out and - Looks at the Hamas Charter.

Its rather heart warming to read of individuals of such a high academic calibre especially when so much of the academic discourse available of late is of such poor quality.
